Township board accepts bid for summer road construction

By Michael Jacobson

The Paynesville Township Board of Supervisors took the following actions at their meeting on Monday, May 22.

*The board accepted the low bid (among five bidders) from Bauerly Brothers for the township's bituminous resurfacing and overlay project this summer. The township plans overlays on 160th Street, Bluebird Street, Cedardale Road, and Copperfield Road and new bituminous surfaces for Cyrilla Beach Road (a joint road with Eden Lake Township), the new extension of Bluebird Street, and 170th Street. Bauerly's low bid was for $297,823.

*The board approved a line road agreement with Eden Lake Township for Cyrilla Beach Road, which is located in Paynesville Township but serves a number of residents of Eden Lake Township on the Cyrilla Beach Peninsula. The agreement calls for the two townships to split maintenance costs 50-50.

*The board reported a line road agreement with Roseville Township for Roseville Road, signed during a joint meeting with the Roseville Township Board of Supervisors at their meeting on Thursday, May 11. The two townships have also agreed to pave Roseville Road from Cemetery Road to Highway 55, with Paynesville Township covering half, Roseville covering a quarter, and the developers covering a quarter.

*The board approved the annexation of 20.39 acres for Keith and Mary Dombrovski and James and Mary Meyer with the addition of an addendum that calls for all the taxes on parcels not to be developed to stay in the township until they are developed. The standard agreement gives two years for city services (sewer and water) to be installed. Most annexations, though, have outlots where services may not be needed for years. The township wants taxes from these portions of annexations to return to their coffers until the land is actually developed.

*The board was informed that crackfiling in the township - on 185th Street, 253rd Avenue, and NW Koronis Road - should be done from Monday, June 12, to Wednesday, June 14.

*The board approved billing two fire calls at $1,000 apiece. The property owner for one of these grass fires had a permit but burned on the wrong date. The other did not have a burning permit, prompting the larger charge.

*The board accepted oversight responsibility for a common septic system in the development of Dennis Spaulding and Earl Stang along the Crow River in Section 18.

*The board set a variance hearing for Charles Nelson on Monday, June 12, at 8:30 p.m. Nelson needs a variance to an easement on his property and five feet on the side setbacks to his neighbors.

*The board set a public hearing for Monday, June 12, at 8:45 p.m. to discuss the extension of Northland Drive (from the Heatherwood Addition) to the new city developments, which would make Northland a thru street.
